population of the school: this latter ratio is approximately 1: .4.

Mr. Stainton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what was the sum disbursed by Greenwich Hospital in each of the last 10 years for the Royal Hospital School and for other benefits, respectively; what income was available to meet this expenditure; and to what extent fees at the Royal Hospital School have made a contribution towards meeting this expenditure.

Fees at the School were introduced in 1957 and the final column in the Table shows that without their assistance (or a reduction of the expenditure on other benefits) Greenwich Hospital expenditure would have increasingly exceeded receipts. It is estimated that fees in 1964–65 will have provided for about one-sixth of the total estimated expenditure on the Royal Hospital School and other Greenwich Hospital benefits.

will give guidance on the uniform use of these signs. I do not propose to use coloured markings on kerbs for this purpose; such markings are prescribed for indicating restrictions on loading and unloading.
